Montana Autism Conference is Free to Parents, Caregivers

Some good news! One of ACT Today!'s proud supporters is offering a FREE conference in Montana on November 19th. Here are all the details...
Registration is Mandatory
The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), one of the world’s largest organizations treating individuals with the state-of-the-art therapy, will host the CARD Montana Autism Conference on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the University of Montana inside of the University Center Theater located at 32 Campus Drive, in Missoula. The free conference is designed for parents, caregivers, students and practitioners in an effort to effectively address Montana’s population of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 of 110 children in America is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, making it more common than pediatric cancer, juvenile diabetes and childhood AIDS.

The CARD Montana Autism Conference will define autism spectrum disorders, how applied behavior analysis (ABA) can be used as an effective tool to treat individuals with ASD, and explain how recovery from autism is possible.

Speakers include board certified behavior analyst Sienna Greener-Wooten, MA, BCBA and autism advocate Joe Mohs. Mohs, who has recovered from autism, will share his personal journey after a screening of the award-winning documentary RECOVERED: Journeys Through the Autism Spectrum and Back.

Registration is required to attend this free conference. To register, contact Daphne Plump at d.plump@centerforautism.com.
